    My car hasn't been able to stream music for the past 1-2 weeks. Do I need to resubscribe to 4G service to get it back? My GPS seems to work fine.

    But anytime I try to stream, it says connect to wifi.

    Did you purchase Premium connectivity? That's the change that happened 2 weeks ago. GPS will still work without it but streaming won't.

    My Friend, you just experienced the Tesla Nazi (humor spin from Seinfeld Soup Nazi show):)

    As a unexpected gift, we all were given one month “free” steaming. Tesla then said “no more steaming for you”:eek:

    For $10/month Tesla will be your best friend again and let you have your steaming back

    Your premium connectivity free trial ended, you can purchase a subscription through Tesla's website for $10/month. You should have gotten an email before it ended.

    So I haven't been able to stream music for the past 2-3 weeks. All I see is "connect to wifi". Then I turn on the radio which is my only option. I don't really like using my phone for music.

    So... how do I get streaming back? Is it because I need to pay for the cellular signal?

    No, I never purchased any subscription based service with Tesla. I took delivery of the Tesla on Dec 31 2019. So I guess that year is up.

    LoL, I watched the youtube clip. I guess b/c he asked for bread, he had to pay $2, but then everyone got it free? So soup is Tesla, bread is the free streaming?

    But I never watched Seinfeld, I don't think its a part of millennial culture assuming this Seinfeld show was likely made for young adults in the 90s. Since this show said it ended in 1998, the stuff millenials talk about when Seinfeld was around is Brink!, A Goofy Movie, Doug, Rugrats, Rockos Modern Life, Hey Arnold. Maybe for an exception of FRIENDS but that seem to be more of a girls show.

    Yes, streaming over Cell requires premium connectivity- which (for cars bought after July 1 2018) is a paid option once your free trial period ends.

    Also, you should have received an email notification regarding the expiration of your Premium Connectivity and an offer to renew that service.

    This is the same reason you can't stream music as you said in your other post. You either live without the good stuff or you sign up for premium connectivity on your Tesla account page.
